According to CNN Business, Neff disparaged Black and Asian people and derided a woman for being a “megashrew” in multiple pseudonymous posts.

    During an interview that took place before it was formally announced that President Trump is commuting Roger Stone’s prison sentence broadcast on Friday’s edition of CNN’s “AC360,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stated that giving Stone clemency is “a terrible idea” and “appalling.” Pelosi also stated that Congress should pass legislation so that presidents are legally restricted from pardoning anyone who commits a crime “that is caused by protecting the president, which this was.”

    CNN's Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon teamed up to mock other media for reporting on the surge of violent crimes being committed in several major cities. This year, New York City has seen the worst gun violence in 25 years. Los Angeles saw a 250% increase in crime—including a 56% increase in shootings compared to last year. In Chicago, shootings were up by 76% compared to a year ago. Lemon characterized the reporting as "racist. Black people shooting Black people is nothing new. It has been a pattern stretching back decades. To act all alarmed about it now is plays...

    Washington(CNN) America's top general launched an outspoken attack on the Confederacy and signaled his support for the military renaming bases named for Confederate leaders on Wednesday, in his latest public comments that seem to put him at odds with President Donald Trump. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley did not hold back in an appearance before the House Armed Service Committee, stating that "those officers turned their back on their oath," referring to the names on the bases. "It was an act of treason, at the time, against the Union, against the Stars and Stripes, against...
  • Don Lemon’s devastating admission - His recent interview with Hollywood star Terry Crews was a complete and utter catastrophe for the Black Lives Matter narrative.

    American Thinker ^ | 07/09/2020 | Howard Bland
    Major Democrat media figurehead and CNN golden goose Don Lemon’s  recent interview with Hollywood star Terry Crews was a complete and utter catastrophe for the Black Lives Matter narrative. Lemon essentially – no, not essentially, literally admitted on live television that Black Lives Matter has absolutely nothing to do with 97% of black victims of violent crime. I’ll explain why after briefly reviewing Don Lemon’s shambolic performance: First, Lemon attempted to con his guest – an ordinary if famous black man simply wondering why yet another horrendous black body-count over an American holiday weekend didn’t arouse the slightest acknowledgement...

    CNN host Don Lemon said nobody is perfect, not even Jesus Christ. During a conversation with network host Chris Cuomo on Monday night, Lemon said that much of history taught to children is "propaganda" and revised basic biblical doctrine by saying Jesus, the central figure of Christianity, was "not perfect." "Jesus Christ — if that's who you believe in, Jesus Christ — admittedly, was not perfect when he was here on this Earth," Lemon said. "So, why are we deifying the founders of this country, many of whom owned slaves?" "No one is perfect. Nothing is perfect. Not even the...

    Right Journalism ^ | 07.09.2020 | Natalie Dagenhardt
    CNN host Don Lemon is well known for his far-left points of view and deep embrace of the Black Lives Matter movement, which is pushing hard to defund police around the country. Lemon earlier this week practically laughed off skyrocketing crime rates in big cities as a police back off from doing their jobs and even look to quit altogether due to mounting forces against them. But that’s not what he thought just a few short years ago. Case in point is a 2013 CNN video showing Lemon shining the spotlight on problems in the black community — and actually...

    On Monday, the social networking site said subreddits -- or forums -- and users that promote hate based on "identity or vulnerability" will be banned. As part of the policy change, Reddit is initially banning about 2,000 subreddits, including "The_Donald," a popular community supportive of President Donald Trump, where users often shared racist, misogynistic, homophobic and conspiracy content. Reddit said "The_Donald" forum has consistently broken its rules, antagonized other communities, and the moderators have refused to meet Reddit's "most basic expectations." The company also said it has given the community warnings and changed its moderators. In 2019, it "quarantined" the...

Despite all the media BS about peaceful protests, Americans are not so willing to go along with ripping down all the statues of heroes and saints, burning and looting the business districts and threats to abolish the police. According to a new poll by Democracy Institute the fallout from the Black Lives Matter protests and riots will win President Trump his reelection.

    Don Lemon told fellow CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that the key to resolving the ongoing controversy about American monuments and racism is to put Barack Obama “front and center” on Mount Rushmore. nd he was serious. “I think, listen … if they are going to put someone on Mount Rushmore, considering the history of this country, the first black president should be front and center.” Cuomo partially agreed. “Add to Mount Rushmore. I think that’s, first of all, it’s a more salable idea than the idea of taking away Founding Fathers.” Lemon further added to his point by saying, “So...

    CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon mocked “ring-wing” news networks Tuesday for reporting on rising crime in major U.S. cities amid the Black Lives Matter protests. Cuomo began by appearing to criticize those who were skeptical about the goal of the BLM movement. He told Lemon “it’s all about creating division” and slammed “state TV” for supposedly spreading “lies” about BLM. “It all fits together, D,” Cuomo said. “The lies about the pandemic. The lies about, you know, what this President will make happen the lies of those around him echo of support. Lies about what Black Lives Matter is...

    As President Donald Trump pushes to reopen schools in the fall amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, National Education Association (NEA) president Lily Eskelsen Garcia on Wednesday “double-dog” dared the president to “sit in a class of 39 sixth graders and breathe that air.” Eskelsen Garcia on CNN’s “New Day” slammed Trump for not using the term “safely” in his push to reopen, which she said is why the NEA supports his opponent former Vice President Joe Biden in the upcoming 2020 presidential election. Host Alisyn Camerota asked, “Are public schools ready to open in September?” “You can see why we...
